Reporter/Producer @jeanmarieevelly jevelly@dnainfo.com

Jeanmarie Evelly is a Reporter/Producer at DNAinfo.com New York covering Astoria and Long Island City.

She spent several years reporting for community newspapers in the Bronx, including the nonprofit Bronx News Network and the award-winning Norwood News.

She is a former contributing editor at City Limits magazine, where she covered the criminal justice system, winning a Prevention for a Safer Society (PASS) Award from the National Council on Crime and Delinquency for a story she wrote about chronic homelessness among ex-inmates in New York City.

She holds a B.A. in English from SUNY New Paltz and a master’s degree from the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism. She lives in Astoria, Queens.

Fun fact: Though she now works with words for a living, Jeanmarie lost her fifth-grade spelling bee after getting the word "lamppost" wrong. To this day, the word still gives her pause.
